(Select your rating)
I was referred to Dr Rifenbery by my doctor. I was able to make an appointment for the consultation within two days. The staff was friendly and professional. The surgeon was very informative and answered all my questions. He said he knew all this is overwhelming and I could call anytime and ask questions. I'm glad I went there.
